This is how bin Laden’s death is used by cybercriminals

According to security researcher Fabio Assolini at Kasperky Labs, cybercriminals are quick to take advantage of the situation when a major news event occurs. There is therefore no exception when the news about Osama bin Ladin came out early this morning.

Security expert warns that images on Google can lead to web pages with malicious code.

According to Fabio Assolini, cybercriminals have created several pages of malicious code that appear if a user searches for images of Osama bin Laden’s body. Several images that appear in Google’s image search feature link to websites like the following:

***-antivirus.cz.cc/fast-scan/
***pe-antivirus.cz.cc/fast-scan/

Both of these sites state that the visitor’s computer is infected with a virus and then try to sell a fake antivirus program that can solve the problem. However, the alleged antivirus program contains a real Trojan that takes control of the user’s computer.
